My Candidates for a New Board - need help deciding!

Hey Everyone,

I'll be buying a new snowboard on Friday and I've done a whole bunch of research. I think I have this one narrowed down to 5 boards. Here is some info about me...

Experience: 14 years, advanced rider, Live in the east, but make a trip out west once/year

Style: Love going fast, mostly groomers when local (unless im lucky enough to get some powder) occasional park, but no rails really... just kickers and pipe. I like to lay out nice big carves, and when I'm out west, I'm on the hunt for steep bowls, powder and good tree lines.

Boot: Size 8
Weight: 180-185
Height: 5'8
Stance: 15, -10 or -15

It's been 8 years on the same board, and I'm very excited to upgrade. Here are my candidates, if anyone has any info, opionions or experience with these boards, it would be greatly appreciated!

Yes. Optomistic 154: $540, 24.9 waist

Yes. The Dudes 156: $529, 25.1 waist

K2 Turbo Dream 156: $479, 24.7

K2 Slayblade 156: $549, 25.0 waist

Rome Anthem 157/159: $499, 24.7/8 waist
